I'm revved up and excited about the upcoming NTEA Work Truck Show (March 8-10). My schedule is jam packed with educational sessions, new product launches, and interviews with manufacturers through Wednesday.

Fleet managers that attending the show should be sure to check out the Green Truck Summit - you have to register for the event, but the agenda is pack full of information on the future of green vehicles, how to find funding, and detailed sessions on various green vehicle components such as hybrid drive solutions and battery systems. Personally, I can't wait to get behind the wheel of some of these green vehicles during the ride and drive!

While at the show, I'll be updating two blogs. One will cover the product side of the event: What's new, features I thought were innovative, items fleet managers could find useful, photos, etc. The other blog will be general coverage of the event - what I'm learning and what's happening on the show floor. Keep your eyes peeled for these two blogs, updated (nightly) starting Monday evening!

I'm looking forward to spending some time talking with the folks from ROUSH, Isuzu, Mitsubishi Fuso, Rotary Lift, WeatherGuard, BAE Systems, and everyone else on the show floor.

If you're heading to Indianapolis next week, I look forward to seeing you there. If you can't make it, keep an eye on the Chatty Chassis blog for daily updates!
